the gear can be installed upside down too, it will work for about 2m then quit- and you have to do it all over again

Thanks Robert.
Mine is broken on the 740.
Looks to be too much trouble for me but now I have some idea of the procedure.
Thank You

Does this also work on a 96 960? The odometer has never worked since owning the car. Its stuck at 86k

Morgan Sorensen says:

Hi Robert, You helped me before on a question on my 1996 VOLVO 960. The issue Now is that I Smell Gasoline when
I am Stopped while Driving. A friend sad, that he Thought it could be the fuel injector Seals that are "leaking".
But I have Looked under the Hood and there is No Visible Sign of any "leaks. Could this be the cause, and How do
I repair it , if possible, or must I take it to a mechanic or the dealer ??
